Bip - a Revolutionary foldable seat

€36,432

Relax, where you've never thought it was possible!
Bip is so handy and comfortable that leaving it home will feel like being without an umbrella during a rainy day.

Outdoor gear usually comes with sector-specific styles & colors that don't fit well in other environments, but Bip's minimal aesthetics make it a true Jack of all trades: public events and office hours are no threat for this clean looking revolutionary seat!     

Given that, we've also created a total of 6 style choices, so that it won't only look cool everywhere you go, but it will also match your own style &  personality!

Most foldable seat either weigh a lot or are too small and uncomfortable to have a concrete advantage over sitting on the ground or standing up. 

Bip is a true lightness champ: in fact, weighs less than any other seat with 2+foots in existence  

When it's opened, is much more comfortable than any other seat or stool, Its incredibly adaptable posture will amaze you!

Flexibility is the Key  

Bip's patented design allows it to be folded quickly and carried easily, either inside his color matching pouch with the included carrying strap or in any kind of bag, backpack or suitcase; thanks to the pouch's ring, it's also possible to attach Bip to your belt (using a carabiner) or to any other mounting point.

Sitting for long times in the same position impedes the flow of blood that is needed to bring nutrients to the muscles and to carry away the waste products of muscle metabolism.

With its never-seen-before bipod-like structure, Bip will enable you (when you want) to swing stably: while being a lot of fun, this means also you won't experience any of the hassles related to static postures and your muscles will be constantly active without you even noticing.

Given the shifting nature of its seating surface, Bip also permits a lot of position adjustments

This section is pretty self-explanatory, as we think every product should be!

Being so light, you might think Bip wouldn't be able to withstand a big weight, but thanks to our innovative technology, Atom™, our seat is Incredibly Tough and resistant.

We've tested Bip with more than 135 kg ( 300 lb) and it hasn't given up once. 

This incredible sturdiness was also achieved thanks to the special materials we've searched and tested for the last 3 years :

We've developed Atom™ starting from the principle of “tensional integrity” enunciated by genius American architect R. Buckminster Fuller, it consists in the elimination of almost all the mechanical bending, twisting and cutting stresses. The components of the structure are solely stimulated in traction (ribbons and bolsters made of resilient polyester) and a small number of components (mainly tubular aluminum rods) are stimulated only during the compression stage. Many of our apparatus are real-world records in weight, minimal encumbrance and strength.

A PERFECT BALANCE OF FORCES: Trough a state-of-the-art system of tensions and compressions we've accomplished incredible structures that are not only the lightest in the market but have also the strongest resistance to drops and mechanic stress.

Di-lite is based the northern part of Tuscany, this area is a hiker’s paradise: mountain paths, peaks, seashores, and a good climate... so, naturally, we love experiencing nature

Over the years outdoor activities have gifted us with a lot of beautiful memories but far less beautiful are the ones related to carrying gear around: In the summer of 2014, I went camping with a bunch of friends and, being the one in charge of chairs and tents, I carried them all along the path to the camping zone: The weight was too much and as I got to the campsite I realized I strained my back, and for the following week, I've been completely unable to move.     

It was then that, just for fun, I began to think of a way to improve portable furniture; joining forces with my father Paolo, longtime designer and geometry enthusiast, we started taking it seriously; in the following 3 years we developed a revolutionary technology and, as the team has gained new essential members, we're now finally ready to bring our first incredible invention to production.

Risks and challenges

Even though this is our First Kickstarter campaign. we've been refining our technologies and setting up our production chain for the last 3 years.

We've already purchased the molds necessary for Bip's mechanical components, and if we'll reach our funding goal and receive the money from Kickstarter, in less than 1 month we'll be able to start production.
We've taken into account possible delays and other variables and we'll most likely be able to start shipping the rewards to our backers near than the start of may 2019, if not earlier.

That being said, as with every other Kickstarter campaign, some variables are not 100% predictable, delays and minor changes to our design may happen, but thanks to your help and feedback and our passion for creating, we think no challenge will stop us from delivering our revolutionary product to the world.

We believe in the revolutionary power of Crowdfunding and we're looking forward to the creation of a strong community around our products.
Ciao!
